I’ve been running between meetings all day, getting caught in about 15 rainstorms and ruined yet another pair of shoes. Tonight I plan on doing nothing else than to stay curled up in my bathrobe, catching up on emails and perhaps watch a movie or two. If you’re in the same situation, you could always pass time by reading this little feature with me on Corniche’s website today. Hope you enjoy!
No matter the season (although spring is definitely the best since the trees grow pretty pink flowers), weather or time of the day, Place Dauphine is always a favourite of mine.
Reminiscing about this spectacular day, photographing the Dior Haute Couture show earlier in July while shooting a special little story for W Magazine as well. Every time I look at the photos from this show I find myself gasping (not because of my own photography talents, don’t worry) because of how much work really goes into putting on a show like this and how incredibly beautiful the outcome can be. Perhaps my head is still stuck in the tiny movie theatre where I saw the movie Dior and I the other day – a must for anyone with the slightest interest for fashion, haute couture or Dior.
Delicious treats at Boot Café, calm mornings in Jardin du Palais Royal, sunny summer evenings by the Seine and the beautiful dome inside Galeries Lafayette. Never forget to look up, some days it’s harder to get out of bed than others, on my way to French toast in Saint Germain and coffee and cake on repeat… French toast on the Ladurée menu, a visit to newly opened Brasserie Barbes, a completely empty Place des Vosges and cute Parisian terraces everywhere you look.
I’ve never experienced such a wonderful summer in Paris before (minus the traumatising dental surgery of course) but the sun has been shining almost every single day and the temperatures have been more than enough. Since I’m not getting my beach vacation this time around I really hope this will last as long as possible. I’m taking a mini “staycation” and so far my days have been filled with sunny strolls and lots of iced coffee…
I’m by no means a style guru, I just tend to wear items I feel comfortable in (and by “wear” I mean really wear. I mean wear until I have to throw that darn dress out because it’s too worn). Even so, I thought it would be nice to share the details properly for those of you who have been asking since I know how frustrating it can be stalking Instagram tags to find the exact item that you’re looking for. So here we go.
I had the pleasure to photograph Kerrie Hess for the very first time when she came to Paris during a freezing cold February (if I’m not mistaken) more than over a year ago now, which ended with dinner, chats and wine at my favourite restaurant Semilla on the left bank. Making new friends, from all over the world is certainly one of my favourite perks about what I do. Fortunately this Australian beauty found her way back to Paris earlier this month on a mission to photograph her new shoe collection, which I’m honoured to have been asked to do. Here are three little teaser images from our shoot together and if you’d like to see more I suggest checking out Vogue Australia or keeping an eye on Instagram.
I’m currently writing this with one of my cheeks being the size of a football, more or less. Yesterday I had to have dental surgery done due to two stupid wisdom teeth that thought it seemed fitting to pop up just in time to ruin my holidays. I was supposed to leave for Italy this Monday to see both family and friends but had to cancel the whole trip because of this less than hilarious problem. Anyhow, fast forward past one of the most uncomfortable experiences of my life and I’m now only able to sip juice and eat cold soup. Hopefully this little bump in the road will be over sooner rather than later and perhaps I’ll even be lucky enough to plan a weekend in Italy after all, we’ll see…
In the meantime I’ll share a few photos from Instagram lately starting with an image from my shoot with the lovely Kerrie Hess (more about that very soon), every marble lover’s dream bathroom at Hotel Le Meurice, my ridiculously happy face when stumbling across this cute Fiat and the Plaza Athénée‘s beautiful red balconies. The view from my flat where I’m currently being held hostage, Parisian street corners, a sparkling Tour Eiffel and some recent work I photographed for Carolina Herrera during Haute Couture week. Place Saint Sulpice, one of my favourite spots in Paris, gorgeous rooftops and empty Parisian streets on a Sunday.
